Actor Ram Kapoor’s weight might be a point of discussion among his fans, but his wife, actor Gautami Kapoor has stopped discussing it with him.

    “I used to initially tell him a lot about losing weight, but not now. If someone wants to change something, it has to come from within them. So I don’t nag him ­anymore,” says Gautami, who is currently seen ­playing the role of Sneha Rishi Mathur in a daily soap.

    On the brighter side, Gautami says that people have started connecting with Ram because of his family man image. “There are friends of mine who call me up and tell me that their husbands can relate to Ram because of his paunch. I guess in a way, Ram’s physique complements the roles that he plays on-screen,” says Gautami, who has worked with Ram in shows such as Ghar Ek Mandir and Kehta Hai Dil.

While Oscar-winning British filmmaker Richard Attenborough will be remembered for ‘Gandhi’ (1982), his epic biopic on Mahatma Gandhi, the film has an Amritsar connection, too.

Among its various historical shooting locations, some are in the holy city, where a part of the film was shot. Critics acclaim the work for its capturing the brutality of the Jallianwala Bagh massacre of 1919. In Attenborough’s ‘Gandhi’, Edward Fox played general Reginald Dyer who had given the shooting order. The movie also portrays the inquiry later by Montague Commission.
